you heard it right, this is a patrician only chat thread, discuss helmut, ccp, vintage raf, yohji etc. people with the knowledge, people who own the pieces, people who be killen it ya mean?
discerning and curious plebs allowed for question time ONLY, this is fashion bunker, the last bastion of actual fashion discussion on /fa/
discuss secondhand shopping
transitioning from a pure yyph wardrobe to a yohji/og helmut/early raf mix
Thinking about how I can mix the yyph and helmut pieces in a good way
going to buy a couple nice hl outwear pieces in the next month or so looking to drop 1-2k on them
the shit raf puts out is nowhere near the level of his early 2000's and late 90's stuff
go back and look at consumed, riot riot riot, woe unto and then look at his current seasons and you will understand how shit he has become
yyph pants go with everything
helmut lang denim jacket go with everything
yohji turtleneck + helmut bomber go with everything
user yyph basics + hl outerwear/accent pieces
been wearing a lot of krisvanassche lately
no reason why, just fucking clean tailoring with a build quality that looks like its from kmart
old school mugler still chilling in the closet, it's a rayon blended with linen
not too fond of the material but mugler's fastening system was innovative for the time
been on this kick for over a year now, just settled into it
I bought a real cheap piece a few years ago that mocked a few CCP's I liked.
Literally changing buttons and getting things tailored made me look like I spent much more money than I already had.
So why is this considered not okay in the fashion world?
also, i have the 5zip and the moto vintage margiela leathers (back when they weighed 13.5lbs each)
and had the structure that stood off of your back and swept back (can see it in the 1998 look book when he was at hermes) should i sell that shit and get the anemic but more modern looking 5lbs leather jackets that fit your body and lack all the kick ass details like the sleeve that comes up to your knuckle and flares at the wrist that ccp exaggerated a decade later
theres versions of the lang denim jacket that are zip fastened instead of button and they're matte exterior with like a cotton+polyamide blend that are very minimal. go with everything.
Sorry if this isnt the right thread, but i was curious as how everybody learns about brands/designers histories and just having general knowledge about fabrics and clothing in general. Is it something that you need to be working with first hand or is there any sites that can help expand my knowledge?
